It felt a little different this year with our children grown, and no one to take trick-or-treating. Andrea did go out with a friend, and loaded up on candy. She made a cute cowgirl at school, and that night she was a ladybug.

Dave and I have wanted to take a trip for awhile to celebrate 27 years of marriage, so even though it isn't our anniversary until April, this seemed like a nice time for a getaway.
Our agenda was basically:
*Fly to Phoenix, Arizona,
*See the Grand Canyon-- including a short hike into the canyon and a mule ride-- and to see both the South and North Rim (which are 5 hours apart by car);
*Take a boat trip on Lake Powell,
*Tour the Glen Canyon dam,
*Visit various ancient Sinagua ruins (Tusayan, Montezuma's Castle, Tuzigoot, and Wapatki)
*Look at lots of Navajo jewelry and eat frybread,
*Visit my childhood home and school in Glendale.
Here are some of our pictures.
